We went to Port Stanley this week (about 1 and a half hours away from our house) and I have a bad habit of always forgetting something wherever I go. And, this time, I forgot my heating pad at the hotel we stayed at so my wonderful husband volunteered to go back for it. Of course, he got a motorcycle ride in too, so that didn't hurt.
And, then on Friday, he found my favourite popsicle (ice pop to you Americans, I think) that's really hard to find around here (they're called Superman popsicles and they're grape and cherry combined into one popsicle and I love them). Anyway, he found 11 boxes of them at a grocery store in Waterdown (about half an hour away) and bought all 11 boxes of them for me! Cool, eh?
And, then yesterday, he went bread hunting for me. I quit eating wheat in March because it appears to cause inflammation, which is bad for me and I found this really good spelt bread by Stonehill Bakery that I like. It's two slices for 130 calories and it tastes a lot like my old whole wheat bread. When I went grocery shopping last time, the only store in our area that I've seen it at didn't have any so I had to have this other spelt bread that is 110 calories a slice and that doesn't have a very good flavour to it. Well, my darling husband went to two stores and found 3 loaves of it for me. He is so good to me and I don't know what I would do without him.
Also, yesterday, I woke up with my left knee in excruciating pain. It felt like my knees felt when I was originally diagnosed with RA in 2004 and I didn't know why it felt this way yesterday. It wasn't damp or humid. After much deliberation, we determined it might very well have been from the portobello burger than I had for dinner the previous night. So, we got the box out of the recycling bin and lo and behold, the third ingredient was wheat flour!
My husband waited on me hand and foot yesterday because it hurt to get around and I love him so much.
p.s. this photo of him is after he had a bicycle accident so that's why he's all bandaged up. I wanted to post a photo I have of him with his motorcycle but I guess it's too big because it wouldn't let me.
